The first lady on the right is my mother, with her sisters.

I have not been writing on my blog for a good few months and I would like to apologise to all my readers for the absence. Unfortunately, I have lost my mother this summer and have not had the courage to start writing until now. It was unexpected, my father has been fighting cancer for the last three years and his condition has been deteriorating, so we never expected my mother to go first. And honestly, I have begged God to not let her go first because he needed her. However, things are not always as we wish, sometimes God has other plans for us. I know she is in her deserved resting place and I have the comfort of knowing that she didn’t suffer. But I also know that I won’t be seeing her again nor hearing her voice again and I miss her terribly. The awful thing is that I haven’t started the grieving process yet and it hurts so much, I feel emotionally bloated and I am hoping that my writing will help to ease the pain.




I can not decide if I am a teacher who writes or a writer who teaches, both activities give me equal satisfaction. Words are my secret place. I write about my experience as a mature student, mental health, living and raising a family in a foreign country, following my dreams and finding love later in life.
